a descent to babylon (babylon asleep) lyrics – celtic frost

babylon asleep, an everlasting foe
striving to hurt, for flesh becomes dirt
resting within, the sacred fire
i can’t withold, the lies untold

dances and cries, a descent to babylon
wine in my hand, a descent to babylon

all eyes must foul, in stench of fear
killing to quench, babylon’s tears

we are wisphering for holy wine
innocence to reign, a world of shrines

this crazy dream, raging over ages
for only one belief. killing – suffer for a thought
in human blood, stretched out

a descent to a 1000 deaths
as sweet as snow, as cold as dew
a descent to a 1000 deaths.
babylon asleep
